Today I found very interesting story and it's visually told in an interesting way. The description alone something captivate you on first sight. A short film about the legendary tornado which hit a Niagara drive-in 20 years ago.

You have probably heard (or used) the expression, '***Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.***' Well, a good one happened in Thorold, Ontario, Canada in 1996. This story spread throughout town and the unbelievable event was covered by national media. But what's most amazing is ... it might not have happened. Twisted, attempts to determine whether this really happened and get to the bottom of the story.

Documentary filmmaker Jay Cheel does his own searching for truth. With very good widescreen cinematography, Cheel offers an excelent look to the vintage experience. It's just fascinating watch.

LA's spectacular lights didn't just inspire directors, they also acted as muse for local cinematographer Colin Rich. In video above Rich unveils City Lights, the last in his Trilogy of Light series.

Last Light is the story of Los Angeles bearing the brunt of a tempest and the clarity that comes after the storm. Super timelapse video set perfectly to the music of M83, Holograms. "It was an nightly adventure that took me to almost every angle of Los Angeles," Rich explains. "I didn't always love Los Angeles but I learned to and discovered that this city is much more than temperate weather, palm trees, pretty girls, and beaches"

With that video, Colin introduced a side of Los Angeles that is rarely seen by most. If you are looking for a few minutes of escape this afternoon we definitely recommend City Lights.
